Best mainstream american comedy seen in a while. This was Mckay's prime. The TLC allusions, the yelly Marky Mark vs the super calm and humming happy go-lucky Ferrel. Hysterical dark side of college Ferrel (pimp Gator). The way S.L.Jackson & Dwayne Johnson throw themselves of the top of that building with a 'aim for the bushes' approach. The wooden gun. Rage Against the Machine vs Little River Band. Alpha vs Omega. ▽
Though never touching on the comic genius of "Anchorman", 'The Other Guys" the lastest teaming of Adam McKay and Will Ferrel is often very funny. The plot is certainly nothing new even in the parody genre but Ferrel and Wahlberg play off each other pretty well. Eva Mendes steals every scene she's in. Coogan And Keaton wasted here. "pimps don't cry.."
An underrated Will Ferrell movie. Him and Whalberg have excellent chemistry and it's hilarious from start to finish. The major problem in the film is that the plot takes itself way too seriously. In a movie like this, the plot shouldn't be this complicated. Also, the narration is unnecessary. But Ferrell delivers some great one-liners.
